Good News!
The stipend amount is $10,000. As more donations are received, the amount will increase. The Dallas Foundation has
wisely invested our funds and charges very low administrative costs. No one associated with the Fellowship is compensated in any way for their efforts. We have been especially honored by a gift from our first donor, Lorraine K. Stock, that more than covered the stipend she received.

Of interest to prospective applicants: a previous Wheeler Fellow was able to use her award to leverage further financial support from her home institution. In the case of all recipients, the award staff alerts the Fellow's home institution, and thus a perceived inequity is explicitly brought to their attention. In one case, this resulted in swift promotion for the Fellow. We encourage all Fellows to make their award well known on their home campuses.

Finally, the current success of the Fellowship and the strength and number of applicants has led such prior donors as Don and Norma Stone to make a most generous annual pledge of $10,000. More pledges like theirs will enable us in the future to offer more than one Fellowship per year. See the “Donate” page for how you can help. Thanks!
